It's Been Said Before

By Orin Hargraves

It's Been Said Before "examines why certain phrases become clichés and why they should be avoided -- or why they still have life left in them."

Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Book Information


Title: Intonation (Second Edition)
Written By: Alan Cruttenden

When published in 1986, this book was the first to survey intonation in all
its aspects, both in English and universally. In this updated edition,
while the basic descriptive facts of the form and use of intonation are
presented in the British nuclear tone tradition, there is nevertheless
extensive comparison with other theoretical frameworks, in particular with
the ToBI framework, which has become widespread in the United States. The
author has expanded the sections on historical background, different
theoretical approaches and sociolinguistic variation.
